Format: Paperback
I've read lots of books on simplifying and organizing that tend to repeat the same old lists of tips but was pleased to discover that this one is different. The conversational style of the author is appealing and knowing she has actually gone through the process of needing to downsize and cut spending lends credibility to the content. This book helps us through the process and takes it a step further to offer suggestions for making money on the things we are going to get rid of anyway.

Each chapter includes her own experiences and the stories of others who found ways to unclutter their homes (and lives) and were able to make some money by doing so. The chapters take the reader room-by-room with suggestions on how to decide whether items should be thrown away, given away, kept, or sold. Ingram also offers advice such as encouraging the reader that one really doesn't need more than one set of towels per person in a household, and that one doesn't have to keep all the wedding gifts just because the giver might stop in sometime and wonder if you use it.

Some of the ideas are those most of us have probably done such as selling children's toys and clothes at a consignment shop, or doing major purging for a yard sale (and she gives advice on how to do a yard sale well for the most profit). Others are some I hadn't thought about such as contacting a company like Replacements.com that buys china to stock as replacement pieces for consumers.

Besides the selling tips, Ingram also offers suggestions by way of quick clutter challenges in each chapter to unclutter a space in thirty minutes or less. The book offers simple solutions to clutter without overstating the obvious and without complicated steps.

I loved this book. If you are like me and have a mountain of "stuff" that you want to deal with to simplify your life; then this is the helpful guide. The author covers everything and what to do with it. While some of the estimates of cash made may have been extra-ordinary, I believe that her guidance of evaluating items was helpful. I will read this multiple times.

A very easy book to read with lots of good ideas on how to organize and get rid of things. A very good guide for an "OVERWHELMING" task...would recommend to anyone who has let their clutter get out of control, like me.

I liked the details on how to sell things and what worked for the author. I will be reading it and applying it page per page. If it works for me, I will certainly tell others about this great book. Too much stuff frustrates most people, so I've got to get rid of some of mine, before my kids have to do it for me. It was a reasonable price for the information in it.

I enjoyed the ideas in this this book. Many of them are so common-sense that you wonder, "Why didn't I think of that?" Some suggestions are unrealistic unless you have a lot of time on your hands, but some are easily incorporated into my workflow. It is a fast read, and well worth it.

Great information on what might be someone else's treasure in my house that I no longer use. How to repurpose or earn money.
